Denim 2.1 Ranking & Summary
Denim 2.1 description
The Denim Project, led by Prof. James Landay, is focused on researching tools for designing user interfaces through informal interaction such as sketching.
Denim is the continuation of the original Silk Project, a pen-based sketching tool to design user interface.
Silk combines many of the benefits of paper-based sketching with existing electronic prototyping tools. It allows designers to quickly sketch an interface using an electronic pad and stylus.
Silk preserves the important properties of pencil and paper: a rough drawing can be produced quickly and the medium is flexible. However, unlike a paper sketch, this electronic sketch is interactive and can easily be annotated and modified using editing gestures.
- Adding support for widgets found in HTML forms and traditional GUIs
- Enhancing the visual sketching language to support more complex events (e.g. animation, roll-overs), conditionals, and custom widgets
- Allowing Denim to exchange data with other web site design tools
- Generating artifacts for presentation and documentation purposes
- At least 256 MB RAM
- A mouse
- You can specify a background image for the entire design using the pie menu item �Edit->Options�. The background image will appear on each page you create in the design.
- Images can be added to individual pages using the pie menu item �Insert->Image�. You can manipulate (e.g., resize or copy/paste) an image as you can do with other objects.
- You can specify different fonts families for text in a design. You can specify as many as three different fonts families using the pie menu item �Edit->Options�. Then you can specify a particular font family for a textual object when you add/edit the object. Selecting an appropriate font also allows you to display text in a language other than English.
- Three different colors are now allowed for text and sketched ink: red, green and black (prior versions only offered black). You can select a color for sketched ink using the pie menu item �Edit->Ink� and for textual objects when inserting/editing them.
- You can zoom in and out a design with a mouse wheel, i.e., rotating up for zooming out and down for zooming in.
- More bugs have been fixed. Denim is also configured to run with a much larger virtual memory.
